A spiritual seeker from a young age, I’ve always been intrigued by the mystique of Eastern philosophies and religions. After serving in the Israeli Defense Forces as an infantry combat field instructor, I was looking to experience greater peace. This renewed sense of freedom led me on an extensive and profound journey through Southeast Asia, namely India, and to the study of yoga. Over the years, I’ve studied several styles of yoga starting with Sivananda and Anusara, and, in more recent years, Ashtanga yoga and Prana Flow. 

My passion for yoga and meditation did not end with my travels. As a clinical psychology graduate student at Columbia University in NYC I focused my studies on positive psychology and the psychology of spirituality through the Spirituality & Mind/Body Institute at Columbia. During my time, there I assisted my mentor Dr. Lisa Miller, Director of the institute, on a study examining mindfulness meditation and how it may help reduce professional burnout. 

While in NYC, I also learned about Shiva and the evolutionary practice of Prana Flow and fell in love with yoga all over again! I earned my 200-hour yoga certification with Sonic Yoga, under the guidance of Lauren Hanna, Johanna Bell, Tracy Mohr and Jeffrey Duval. Tying it all together, I wrote my final grad school thesis on the benefits of yoga for postpartum depression. Since then I’ve completed a 500-hour Prana Vinyasa certification with Shiva, and a 200-hour Ayurvedic Life Style Consultant training with Maria Garre.

Off the mat, I’m a passionate world traveler. I’ve spent time working and volunteering abroad and spent the last decade living in Miami, London, Hawaii, NYC and now in the great city of Boston! I love to laugh and make people feel good. My goal is for yoga practice to feel like an adventure, enjoyable exploration, and opportunity to let go and flow regardless of level or experience. My classes aim to balance hard work with internal reflection and relaxation. In my classes, I incorporate my knowledge of positive psychology, mindful living, movement meditation, martial arts, and Ayurveda to make practice a fun, sweaty, and transformative experience.
